Course Summary

The applied paediatric neuropsychology programme is designed to provide you with training in the various aspects of science underpinning clinical paediatric neuropsychology practice. The programme is suitable for outstanding psychology postgraduates who are not yet qualified as clinical or educational psychologists, but are motivated to study paediatric neuropsychology at this stage of their career. You will develop an understanding of the techniques, methods and contemporary findings of developmental cognitive neuroscience and learn how to interpret clinical case presentations within the context of the latest scientific findings of developmental brain-behaviour relationships. You will also gain knowledge of professional, ethical and service delivery issues in assessment and rehabilitative work. This programme aims to equip you with the skills needed for positions such as research assistants and assistant psychologists. It also prepares you for PhDs and DClin Psych qualifications, which in turn lead to clinical psychologist or neuropsychologist positions. This degree is also available as a PG Diploma with fees set accordingly.
